Perfect family holiday with children

  • 4 of 5

A great place to take a family break, literally away from it all. Our daughter (9) took some horse riding lessons while our son (7) went wild in the pool. The pool house is the place to be with a BBQ, pool-table, music and all you need to relax surrounded by the Portuguese landscape. The house is very spacious and Andy and An do a great job at making sure everything is OK without interfering with your daily life. The City of Tomar is a great place to visit and although it was not my first trip to Portugal I was amazed at the kindness of the Portuguese people. We did a couple of day-trips to Peniche, Obidos and other smaller towns in the area and we never had to deal with flocks of tourists. I think it was the perfect place for us this year considering our desire to get away and the young age and interest of our children. Obviously not the place for clubbing and night-owls.

Wonderful little corner of rural Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Visited Windmill Riding Centre with friends for a short horse-riding break in the sun. Comfy, clean accommodation, good food and plenty of wine! The owners of the property go out of their way to make you feel welcome yet allow you privacy when you want it. The surrounding area is beautiful and very authentic. A great combination of horse-riding and relaxing by the pool. Enjoyed four days of horse-riding on responsive but sensible horses. James will tailor the holiday around what you want, from longer picnic rides in fantastic countryside to lessons. Would highly recommend.

belle maison spacieuse et fonctionnelle. coin piscine tres agreable.

  • 3 of 5

Très belle location spacieuse et fonctionnelle. Les propriétaires sont charmants et attentionnés. La maison est située dans un endroit rural de la région de tomar donc assez isolée. Le seul problème rencontré ; les aboiements d'un chien errant continuelles surtout la nuit. Nous en avons fait part au propriétaire qui en avait conscience et le problème devait être réglé après notre départ. Donc a vérifier.
